You’ve seen her take Dr. Phil’s hand after every show and walk him off stage. You’ve heard her input on parenting, empty nest syndrome and menopause. Today, Robin shares the stage with Dr. Phil to celebrate the release of her debut book Inside My Heart: Choosing to Live with Passion and Purpose. Follow Robin’s poignant journey as she travels back to her childhood roots and gives a glimpse into the life-changing moments that helped her become an empowered woman. She talks candidly about her father’s alcohol addiction, and also about her mother’s tragic death. Then, five of Robin’s biggest fans are waiting backstage and have no idea what’s in store for them! Plus, meet a young woman who says she regrets becoming a mother and thinks about just walking away. Robin gives her advice on coping with post-pregnancy blues. And, actress Morgan Fairchild helps Robin kick off a very important campaign for women! Talk about the show here.

EXTEMELY BITTER INSIDE

 

I came from a broken home, my father is also a alcoholic and

I'm very bitter inside,angry,resentful,raging, and been betrayed all my life. I have got a raw deal out of life and it's so unfair how I was treated as a child and who I have become today.

angry for what has happen to me as a child. My father sexually abused me at the age of three years old, then he abandonment the whole family . Last year I was diagnosed with several mental illnesses, borderline personality disorder,bipolar1 and PTSD. My father is the one who caused me to have borderline personality disorder, from the sexual abuse.

My real brother went to a mental institution and my mom and I went to live at grandmas house. I lived there till I was nine years old, the rage I had living at my grandmas, the night terrors I had and wetting the bed too. My mom and grandma put me in foster care, I became a burden on my grandma and mom with the rage I had inside of me. I had every right to be angry and bitter inside, then I went to this children home and it gotten worse. The foster dad and foster sister sexually abused me in the home, my foster dad beat me and so did my foster mom. The horrible things they done to me.

I can go on and on about this this is just the scrape off the surface the pain is so great....And I've been looking for a inpatient treatment center to help me with these issues. I've been tryjng to get out of a situation I'm in and addiction I have it's money and I can't stop I need help. I'm so sick of living this way and I don't love myself at all and my self-esteem is shot from all the stuff I've been through, I have try everything you can think of to get out of my life style. I have people turn me down because of my mental illnesses and my night terrors. When I move my night terrors gets worse, it triggers the past. Because I have moved so much and it takes a long time to feel safe, my life have beem so unstable for years. I need help....

Motherhood

I am a mother to the four greatest children on the planet.  Yet, it's not been an easy journey.  The one piece of advice I wish I would have received as a new mother was the raw expectation of motherhood, (i.e. difficulties of being a first time mother, the fluctuating emotions, the joy and fear).  I was under the impression that once my brand new little bundle of joy was born a "magical maternal hormone" would take over and I would suddenly know exactly what to do with this child.  My husband thought this to be the case as well.  Guess what?  No magic.  I made mistakes.  I cried all the time.  I was so frustrated that I just didn't get this mother thing.  My hormones were in a state of flux.  One minute I was laughing and overjoyed at seeing my baby smile, lift his head, roll over, etc. while the next I was in tears for God knows why.  It took me nearly two years to figure out my new role as a mother.

A big part of my problem was defining the new role in my life.  I felt like for two years I had "lost" myself.......my identity. That terrified me.  I was always this self-sufficient, independent woman.  Suddenly, I had a new life to take care of.  I chose to be a stay at home mom.  I had to learn to depend on my husband financially, emotionally, and physically while learning that I had a baby depending on me.  It took my two years to figure out that I absolutly did not lose my identity.  I added more to it.  I learned I CAN depend on people for help, especially my husband.  I learned that I AM a good mother because I have learned and am still learning from my mistakes.  And now my husband and I have very happy children.

To the mother on the show, I do agree that she has hormone issues.  I also believe that she did not know what to expect.  Motherhood is hard.  It's also the best decision I've ever made. ~ Tamara

09/12 Inside My Heart

Quote From: jenfromoz

I'm in Australia, so we are quite a few months behind.  I'm kind of looking forward to it, but I'm a bit concerned with Morgan Fairchild and the "important campaign for women".  Surely Robin isn't a pro-abort!!!!!!!  I know Morgan Fairchild is!

 

Guess I'll find out from the message board after the airing.

 I dont' know how Robin feels about abortion but a move twelve years ago changed my perspective completely on judging people who believe differently than I do on very important subjects. Some of us will never agree in certain areas but I've learned so much about life and acceptance of others from the very people that I thought I'd never have anything to do with. We all have so much to offer to each other.

Don't write off anyone. Listen. Take what they have to say and give it to God. It may create for you a wonderful  life-changing experience. After-all, if we have something important in our hearts to offer to those who believe and live differently shouldn't we acknowledge that they may have something beautiful and important in their hearts to offer us.

Today's show - Robin's new book.

 I'm glad you wrote the book and I'm sure you give a lot of good advice.  I just question that since you have become a role model for a lot of other women and especially the younger women, should you be a little more conservative with the way you dress.
